Taissa Farmiga as Sister Irene and Bonnie Aarons as the demonic nun Valak.

Before The Conjuring and Annabelle, the darkest force was born. When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together, they uncover the order's unholy secret. Risking not only their lives, but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that terrorised audiences in The Conjuring 2, as the abbey becomes the horrific battleground between the living and the damned. The Nun stars Academy Award nominee Demian Bichir as Father Burk, Taissa Farmiga as Sister Irene, and Jonas Bloquet as local villager Frenhie. The cast also includes Charlotte Hope (Game of Thrones) as the abbey's Sister Victoria, Ingrid Bisu as Sister Oana, and Bonnie Aarons reprising her Conjuring 2 role as the title character. Corin Hardy (The Hallow) directs The Nun from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman (IT) and story by James Wan and Gary Dauberman. The Nun is the fifth instalment in The Conjuring universe and explains the shocking origin of the demonic nun Valak.
